Meet Our Founder

Hi, I’m Meghan Telpner and thank you so much for taking an interest in the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and specifically, the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program. I have been working in the field of nutrition since 2008, beginning my career in nutrition after healing my own incurable auto-immune disease. I went back to school to study nutrition but felt there was still a gap in knowledge where it came to cooking, the most important part of healthy living.

What began as intimate cooking classes in my Toronto loft kitchen has grown into a tribe of more than 2,100 incredible people in over 65 countries.

If your interest is piqued and you’d like to learn more, there is loads more information for you here.

What Sets This Program Apart

1. Food Is At The Core Of Our Teaching

We use food as the primary tool for our teaching, where all of our classes take place in the kitchen where you will learn about food, health, culinary skills, and putting it all together where health begins- in our kitchens. Meghan teaches as she cooks and you are then guided into your kitchen to create culinary nutrition magic with weekly recipe assignments — both following recipes and creating your own.

2. Professional Certification

The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is the first and only program to offer this kind of training online with a certification seal to confirm your completion and comprehension of the program. You get a stamp of approval on your super skills!

3. Applied Learning Made Delicious

Where else can you eat your homework? We learn in various ways and one of the best is when we learn something intellectually, and then immediately put it into practice. The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is practical in application so that the information sticks.
